HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Nov. 11, 2013) - Check out this video about Health24 made by six computer programmers from The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) whose team won the grand prize at America's Datafest in Auburn.
The team earned $1,000 from Alabama Media Group and the opportunity to compete for the global prize. Team members Josh Jones, Jarrod Parkes, James Parkes, Mini Zeng, Prabhash Jha and Ha Giang built a set of products they call Health24 that can translate medical labels and information. It includes a list of popular medicines sorted by common symptoms, translatable into any language; a searchable database of medicines that lists interactions; and a translation tool that works from photos of medicine instructions.
